Police detain fake soldier who steals from women after making marriage promises
Mkwatula, a 38-year-old man, was arrested for stealing from women after lying to them that he was a Malawi Defence Force member and that he would marry them.
The suspect has been professing love to ladies, cohabiting with them, and promising to marry them, according to Ntcheu Police spokesman Rabecca Kwisongole.
Mkwatula would steal items such as motorcycles, plasma TVs, speakers, telephones, duvets, and cash, according to Kwisongole, days after cohabiting with a woman.
“Police records show three cases were registered against him and he is expected to appear in court soon to answer charges of theft and fraudulent pretence of marriage contrary to sections 278 and 161 of the Penal Code,” said Kwisongole.
Police have recovered a motorcycle, plasma TV, telephones, a speaker, and a duvet in the meantime.
The suspect is from Balaka district’s Mdala village Traditional Authority Amidu.
